Today is the official launch of the Media 2.0 Workgroup. The idea for creating this Workgroup that covers Media 2.0 topics is the brain child of Chris Saad and over the last few weeks a core group has been discussing the format, purpose and value that the Workgroup will hopefully bring to the industry.

We already have a great group of industry leaders and this morning my e-mail was a buzzing with additional requests to participate. Since we offer an aggregated feed as well as OPML, you will be able to subscribe to posts that the Workgroup participants submit with the 'Media 2.0' tag.
